Google Optimize to Optimizely: A seamless transition
Published August 23, 2023 by Jacob Pretorius – Tech Lead & Optimizely Gold MVP
Google Optimize has been a popular choice for organisations seeking to enhance user experiences. A/B testing, multivariate testing, and personalisation capabilities have enabled website owners to iterate and improve based on data-driven insights.
However, Google has announced that it will be discontinuing Optimize and Optimize 360 on 30th September 2023. This news leaves many organisations in need of a reliable alternative to continue their web experimentation practice.
Optimizely is a natural successor, and one of only three vendors with whom Google teams collaborated closely to provide direct API access and a mechanism for extracting historical analytic data out of Google Optimize.
Seven reasons why Optimizely is the most logical alternative to Google Optimize
A proven track record
As Optimizely created the first ever web experimentation platform, they have a long history of leading the way when it comes to performance and data-driven web experimentation.
Advanced experimentation capabilities
Optimizely offers a wealth of experimentation options, from simple A/B testing to more advanced methods like multivariate testing and full-stack experimentation. This means you can explore a wide range of possibilities to find the optimal configuration for your website.
Seamless user experience
Transitioning from Google Optimize to Optimizely is smooth and intuitive. Optimizely's user-friendly interface ensures that users at all levels can easily set up experiments, manage variations, and analyse results without a steep learning curve.
Reliable support and resources
Optimizely offers robust customer support, documentation, and educational resources to help you maximise the platform's potential. Whether you're new to web experimentation or a seasoned pro, you'll find the assistance you need to succeed.
Optimizely's comprehensive analytics and reporting tools provide actionable insights into the experiments' performance. Make informed decisions based on real-time data, which make it possible to optimise your website for better results continuously and effectively.
A good deal
Optimizely is offering a discount on all customers coming from Google Optimize who need a new home for their web experimentation needs.
As we approach the sunset of Google Optimize, the transition to a new web experimentation platform becomes a priority for organisations seeking to maintain their experimentation and data driven based approach.
Optimizely is a strong contender, offering quick setup, advanced experimentation capabilities, user-friendly interfaces, and a wealth of resources to support your optimisation journey. Teams using it will be well-equipped to continue refining their touchpoints, enhancing user experiences, and achieving their online objectives with confidence.
